spaceout 闊 – Vision Exchange

Vision Exchange seems to be a building that contains many F&B establishments that are pretty much unnoticed, considering how most of them only operate during weekdays and how the building is situated away from the hustle and bustle of Jurong East. Apart from Whatthefish and Heritage House which we have covered previously, Vision Exchange is…

Heritage House – Vision Exchange

Whilst many eateries still do serve Peranakan Kueh, places that served handmade Peranakan Kueh from scratch are increasingly rare to find considering the tedious preparation it requires.

Cuppafield – Blk 446 Bukit Batok West Avenue 8

Family-run cafes opening at the foot of HDB blocks are a rarity these days, considering how most cafes seemingly are opened in commercial buildings of the late.
